Music is her forte: LHS student makes it into ACDA National honor Choir

For some people, music comes naturally. Senior Alie Watson is one of those people who was born with a love, passion and talent for music. This became clear when Watson auditioned and made it into the ACDA National Honor choir, a competitive choir for teens around the country.

“I was not feeling super confident about my audition, so this is very exciting,” said Watson.

The auditions were all online. Watson took time to record her audition song several times with Choir teacher Jim Farrell until she found the most accurate and best recording.

¨I was surprised I got in because I was not feeling super confident about my audition, so this is very exciting,” said Watson.

The next step for Watson is for her to learn her music and perfect it. The exciting thing about this experience is that the concert takes place in Minneapolis in March.

¨We will be there for 5 days. We will be rehearsing for the first 4 days and then we´ll preform the final concert on the last day. It is a super exciting experience,¨ said Watson.

Music is important to Watson. She has been in choir in all her time at LHS, as well as theater productions. The confidence she brings to the stage makes it very clear  she is very passionate about singing.
